try to hide the shock

by J.J. Campbell

muddy waters
on the jukebox

a pretty woman
alone at a table
in the corner

i walked over
and asked if
she knew she
was going home
with me later
in the evening

she laughed
and told me
to start buying
the drinks if
that was going
to happen

two of something
strong on the rocks
i tell the bartender

like i know what
the fuck i'm doing

i try to hide the
shock that this
might actually

of course, my
credit limit isn't
that high

so here's hoping
she's a lightweight
